Need help tweaking this build Tags: New Build Systems Last response: July 31, 2012 10:28 PM in Systems Share johnsmith42 July 31, 2012 3:42:01 AM What I'm currently upgrading from: Phenom II X4 955 BE Geforce GTX 460 4gigs RAM I'm looking to spend under $1000. I appreciate any help. This wish list doesn't include a case. I'm definitely open to suggestions for one of those. http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx... I currently have an earthwatts 550w power supply, dvd drive, sufficiently large HDD, and KB/Mouse/Monitor. If I am under budget I will replace my KB and mouse.

Also, the HYper 212 EVO Cooler for OC'ing. | Report abuse azeem40 July 31, 2012 6:24:13 AM You missed the part where he has an H77 board. If not OCing, get an i5-3450. If you are, get the i5-3570k and an ASRock Z77 Extreme4. | Report abuse johnsmith42 July 31, 2012 10:28:39 PM I haven't even thought about overclocking. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Need help tweaking this build> Related ressources: ForumOverclocking and tweaking help ForumI need help tweaking my new system ForumSSD Tweaking of System Restore and Pagefile Questions Forum$1100 Gaming Build (Needs Tweaking Advice!)
